Dahlia 'Melody Allegro'
This Dahlia may have been mismarked as it seems a little different than most of the other ‘Melody Allegro’ I have seen. We didn’t grow a lot of Dahlias this year mainly as a reaction to the fungus we had been experiencing in the last couple of years. Of course there was no fungus this year and the several that we planted in the cutting garden did great. Other than a little nibbling by the woodchuck it was care free gardening. I don’t really mind sharing a few tidbits with the animals (they have their place in the garden’s eco-system too) but when they become overly destructive then something has to be done. Luckily we didn’t get to that point other than spraying a little light repellant twice during the season that was it.
This picture is from my compact camera a Nikon P6000, which I recently found in my office after a few months (had it in my spring jacket pocket). I must admit it was great having the camera in my pocket at work again. It is an amazing piece of machinery that takes beautiful pictures.
